Chicken Alfredo Pizza

It is Fire Day Friday and one of our favorite things to cook on our grills is pizza. Yes, grilled pizza. That might sound weird but it shouldn’t, coal and wood fired brick oven cooked pizzas are all the rage these days.

But first I have to thank Jenn of Jenn’s Food Journey for the excellent job she did guest posting for me last week. She has an open invite to post Fire Day Friday anytime she wants.

Back to the pizza. This is one Alexis made this week on her Big Green Egg. You could do the same thing in your oven but it is just a bit better cooked by live fire.

Alexis’ Chicken Alfredo Pizza

1 chicken breast, boneless, skinless
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp kosher salt
2 slices bacon, cooked to crisp and crumbled
1 green onion, diced for garnish
1 recipe Pizza dough (use refrigerated, buy from your local pizza joint or make your own. Alexis used the recipe from Kitchenaid for their Crusty Pizza Dough).

Alfredo Sauce
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1 cup half & half
1 cup pecorino romano cheese, grated

If you are making your own dough, like Alexis, make it first because it’s going to have to rise and do all that yeast voodoo that you amazing bakers do.

Then fire up your grill to 400f. Season the chicken with the salt and pepper. Grill 5-6 minutes per side or until 160f internal temp. After resting the chicken for 10 minutes, thinly slice.


While chicken is resting, melt butter in a medium sauce pan. Whisk in the flour, stirring until mixing together in a light blond roux. Whisk in the half & half and simmer until reduced in volume by half. Then blend in the cheese.

Raise your grill or oven temperature to 500f. Spread the dough over a pizza stone and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Remove and ladle 1/2 cup of the alfredo sauce onto the dough. Top with the chicken, bacon, and mozzarella. Drizzle about 1/4 cup of the alfredo sauce over the top.

Return to the oven/grill in an indirect heat set up for 9 minutes and top with the green onion. Cook another 2-6 minutes, until the crust reaches your desired crispiness and the toppings are melted.
Have I mentioned that I am one lucky guy because I married the perfect woman for me.

So what’s your favorite pizza?

  1. YUMMY! Great job Alexis! I love Chicken Alfredo Pizza and can smell the live fire from here. I also agree that Jenn did an awesome job and I extended her an open ended invite to guest host for any of us.On a lighter note LOL hubby was reading over my shoulder and accused you of plagiarism (which I reminded him doesn't apply because he never wrote it down where you could have seen it) because of your last statement of the post. Since the day we were married hubby has told me I am the perfect woman/wife for him. You sentimental guys!

  2. I think that could be my favorite pizza in a heartbeat! Otherwise I like spinach alfredo pizza, I like other white pizza's too. I have always done the grilling (and cooking and shopping)at our house and I haven't heard my husband say that, maybe he wrote it down somewhere, lol!You guys are so sweet!

  3. We rarely ever use the oven since we discovered grilled pizza, but haven't done this one. It sounds super and will be on the menu soon. You and I sure are lucky as I feel the same way about Bev.

  4. Perfect Chris and Alexis! I love chicken alfredo pizza and grilled any pizza is the best! My very favorite homemade pizza is chicken pesto pizza with bacon and tomatoes. Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

  5. Thanks Chris! I had such a great time doing the guest post and got such wonderful feedback from it too!! With that said, I'm glad your back 🙂 This pizza looks wonderful!!!
